A minor bug with local adjustments and color range mask

I have noticed that the color mask eyedropper is displayed under the following steps when applying a new local adjustment with the Shift key pressed.

1. Click a local adjustment, for instance the gradient filter.
2. Click and drag to create a filter.
3. Select the color range mask and choose the color sampler tool (eyedropper).
4. Click and drag to add a selection of color. Important - don't put the tool back.
5. Click Done to close the filter.
6. Click another local adjustment. This can be the same one or different, such as the radial filter.
7. Press Shift, then click and drag to create the filter. Notice that as you drag the cursor displays the eyedropper+ icon. If you release the mouse, then Shift and drag again, the cursor displays normally.

This is on Windows 10 Pro ver. 1903 Lr Classic 8.4

I'm not seeing this behavior on macOS 10.14.6 and Lr8.4

I cannot replicate what you are seeing, Anthony. When I get to Step 7 I have a normal cursor and not the eye dropper.

Rikk,

Strange, happens every time I try it for me.

In step 7, if I don't press the shift key, then I get the eye dropper tool icon when I add the filter by clicking and dragging.

If you put the eye dropper tool back in step 4 before closing the filter, then opening the filter again and adding a filter shows the normal cursor icon.

The shift in step 7 shows the eye dropper with the + (as if you are adding to a selection).

I am seeing what you describe.
Tested it twice on 2 different images, Fuji RAW RAF files. I see exactly what you stated.
Not sure it really matters in the long run.

Agree, it might not matter, but somethng isn't being done correctly in the code.

Ok. I've tried on Mac 10.14.6 and Windows 10 (1903) now and can't replicate on either OS.  What pointing devices are you using?
What Video Card set?

Hi Rikk,

My mouse is a Logitech M310. I just tried another mouse, a Logitech M235 and with this newer mouse I don't see the problem. Might be time to update my old mouse, which is looking a bit tired :)

Thanks for your suggestion, which points to the pointer!

Rikk,

I just deleted the mouse driver from Windows device manager, restarted Windows and let it reinstall the mouse.

Tried the steps again with Lr Classic and everything worked as normal - no eye dropper.

Fixed

I'm not going to that extreme. No reason I can see to uninstall my Logitech software.
